We aim to meet the needs of all our guests
but there are some features at our Bed and Breakfast which may make access difficult for some.
We are in a quiet corner of the National Trust village of Lacock with beautiful views of the church from all our windows. Parking is no problem as there is plenty of space in front of the house in a large gravel yard. There is no kerb and there is rear access to your car once you have parked. It is a walk of approx. 15 metres, along a flagstone path to the front door with only one step down.
We will always help with your luggage if you need us, just ask. The yard can be dark at night, but the path and front door are well lit. We like to keep the front door always locked for safety reasons but just ring the bell and someone will soon be there to welcome you in. On entering the door there is a threshold to step over of 10cm. Some doorways are fairly low for the taller person. Seating is available in the entrance and we ask guests to fill in a form giving their names and addresses. The entrance has a mat for feet which is anti slip and especially safe for such places. The wooden floor has a special anti slip finish though it appears to be highly polished.
We always like to show guests where breakfast is served, where the lounge is and take them up to their bedrooms. This way we can explain the keys to the rooms and the front door. We can also answer any further questions guests may have about pubs, food etc. The three guest rooms, two doubles and one twin, are all on the first floor and of course this means there are stairs. All the bedrooms are carpeted and the house is centrally heated throughout the chilly seasons of the year. There is a hairdryer, radio and alarm clock, additional pillows and blankets in each room. We can give you either synthetic or feather pillows – just ask.
The two double rooms have en suit facilities (shower only - no bath) and the twin room has its own shower etc. just outside the room. All the showers have a step up, approx. 30 to 40 cms. to get into them and have thermostatic mixers with twist turn taps. One of the double rooms is in its own separate part of the building with its own front door. It is called the Governor’s House. It has a narrow wooden staircase with a partial handrail. It has its own T.V. with remote control. Also it has a small walled garden with a nice bench and is very pleasant in warm weather and warm summer evenings.
The lounge is ceramic tiled with rugs and there is a small ramp down into the room. There is a television in the lounge, just ask for assistance.
Breakfasts, in the lounge, are usually a good English breakfast but we will gladly make vegetarian breakfasts and will always try to provide breakfasts for guests with special diets or likes and dislikes. We are happy to refrigerate any medicines, special food or baby food.
The general store and post office, (if it is allowed to stay open), is approx.150 metres from the house. The bus stop is about 100 metres and runs every hour. Our nearest railway station is at Chippenham and is on the Bristol to Paddington line. Taxis are available and can easily be booked.
Evacuation and what to do if there is a fire are in the information packs in the rooms. We have a cat but also welcome dogs here with their owners, especially “assistance dogs”.
We are open throughout the year except for Christmas day and our annual holiday.
